We believe in and value recognition above material reward.  Intrinsic motivation underpins our recognition system and students collect recognition points by demonstrating our Testbourne Standards of Excellence.

KINDNESS AND RESPECT - We treat others, ourselves and our environment with respect. We are kind and caring towards others. We never use prejudicial language or bully or harass people because of their gender, religion, ethnicity, race, sexuality, disability or other protected characteristics. We value equality.

HONESTY AND INTEGRITY - We do what is right, even when no-one is looking. We tell the truth, and we admit our mistakes and learn from them.

AMBITIOUS LEARNERS - We can work independently, we are resilient when work is hard, we respond positively to challenge, we are motivated, we seek improvement, we work hard, we are organised and have the right equipment and resources to learn.

LEADERSHIP - We are positive members of the school community and, to others, we are a good example of the Testbourne Standards of Excellence.

Achievement is also recognised by our Heads of Year through their weekly assemblies and certificates are awarded to deserving students at the end of every term. Our Headteacher also recognises significant achievements by writing personal letters to congratulate students and inviting them to afternoon tea. At the end of the academic year, we take pride in formally recognising our top performing students in our prestigious Prize Giving Ceremony at the Guildhall, Winchester.
